HYDRAGEN TECHNOLOGY APPROVED IN UNDERGROUND MINING
DynaCERT Inc.'s HydraGen technology has been approved for underground mining applications in Canada pursuant to a formal risk assessment commissioned by DynaCert's dealer, Total Equipment Services Inc. (TES), based in Sudbury, Ont., and one of TES's major underground mining customers in Northern Ontario. (See press release dated April 11, 2019.)
TES, with support of dynaCERT engineers, recently participated in risk assessment exercises with one of its operating mining customers in Northern Ontario in Canada. The workplace risk assessment and control (WRAC) was undertaken to develop a better understanding of any occupational health and safety hazards that could possibly arise from the installation of a HydraGen unit. The planned installation is to be on a Sparta utility vehicle (boom truck) of TES that is currently being used by the mine in underground situations.
Through the risk ranking process, the HydraGen technology that TES plans to install according to specified mine standards has met approval. The next steps are expected to begin in November, 2019, with the launch of a user case study. This comprehensive analysis will track the effectiveness of the HydraGen technology underground by measuring the changes in emissions and fuel economy.
Kevin Whynott, president and chief executive officer of TES, stated: "We are excited by this groundbreaking development to start testing the effectiveness of the HydraGen units underground. We know how important lowering diesel emissions are to the mining community. As the advancement of other emission solutions have been slow moving, we are confidently hoping that this is a solution that can start lowering emissions immediately."
Jim Payne, president and chief executive officer of DynaCert, stated: "At DynaCERT, we have always understood the opportunity for our HydraGen technology which provides carbon emission reduction and NOx reductions to the underground mining industry. TES has been a strong supporter and catalyst in obtaining approval of what is a key milestone for our company. I thank Kevin Whynott and his entire team for their important achievement."
Risk assessment involves the assigning of a level of risk to each of the known health and safety hazards, followed by the ranking of those hazards. A hazard is any source of potential damage, harm or adverse health effects on something or someone under certain conditions at work. Risk is generally considered to be the chance of something happening that will have an impact on objectives. It is usually measured in terms of event likelihood and consequences.
